Red sox just DFA'd Drake Britton to make room on the 40 man for Ogando
BRitton really had no chance once the Sox dealt for Ross anyway...

Given his health history and apparent durability, Ogando makes more sense as a reliever.
But then its not like self-declared 2015 Cy Young nominee Jor Kelly is a bastion of good health himself...

Is it really a âproven truthâ that pitching wins championships? And how is this quantified? I have been hearing this for YEARS, and now moreso than ever how important pitching is. Well, how imp more »

And just because someone likes two prospects doesn't mean they are viewed equally. It's actually not hypocritical to be okay with trading Ranaudo whilr still being protective of Betts and Swihart.

Ross is a terrific reliever, but man, he was a bad starter last year...
